So I've been a resident for a few years and thought that I was moving into a community that was a crown jewel for Suffolk County. Wow...was I wrong!!
Can someone please answer the following?
1. Why do people like throwing garbage on the ground as they walk past or, worse yet, as they drive down the block? Unfortunately, i've seen both adults and kids do this.
2. Why is it that I walk around our neighborhood and see kids smoking pot (in 3 spots that I've found) and no one else does?
3. Why is it that everyone complains about the tax base, but no one does anything about it?
I can go on (and probably will in the future), but hope that you understand where I'm going. I do like the area, but there are many irritations that are preventing me from enjoying it fully. Rather than comment negatively on my thoughts - how do we clean up all of the negatives and truly make Smithtown shine?
